By which we can evaluate student performance through a set of criteria associated with educational goals that describe student performance at multiple levels. It contributes to accuracy, objectivity and transparency in evaluating students’ work and improving their performance assessment practices in the academic education. Moreover, it also achieves excellence in the field of learning and teaching with a clear vision that ensures the effectiveness of teaching and the quality of learning outcomes.
Hence, we urge faculty members to make the most of this project and its outputs, which we hope from God will bring about a distinct shift in assessment processes and procedures and contribute to diversity in this field.
